INFORMATION

We will briefly introduce the history of deep learning for autonomous driving, and give an overview of what makes it such a game-changing technology.  It is very challenging to deploy deep learning in a life-critical system like an autonomous truck.   We explain the root cause of the difficulty, and introduce our strategy for overcoming it.

Key takeaways:

  • deep learning is a fundamental building block of all autonomous driving systems
  • deploying deep learning safely into a life-critical system is a new challenge
  • the root cause of the challenge is the tension between inductive learning and heavy-tailed distributions
  • the ultimate solution is high-mileage active learning across a large fleet
